I just wanna go back in time

Guess who's back?

Well, me, but that's besides the point.

The real news: Linda Sundblad is releasing a new single.

Since her 2006 debut solo album, the former Lambretta single has kept herself busy by hosting a Swedish radio show and composing songs for other artists--great songs like Elin Lanto's "Speak 'n Spell" and Fibes, Oh Fibes!'s new Kim Wilde-featuring "Run To You" --but now she's finally coming back to that solo career. Her new single, "2 All My Girls" or "To All My Girls," is coming out soon; one site says it's released on September 7, but if that's to radio or commercially, I'm not sure. That same site refers to it as a proper pop song with an '80s-styled video (which was made by the same people who made BWO's last few videos and Le Kid's "Mercy Mercy" video). Since she's just finished up her gig with the aforementioned Swedish radio station, she must be preparing for a proper promotional push for this new project.

I can't guarantee the song's quality, but I'm very excited to hear it. Linda's "Lose You" remains as emotionally affecting yet subtle as it was the day it was released, but Oh My God! contained other gems. I'm hoping, though, that this time her album will be even better. As I've written about before, early reports indicated the lead single from Linda's next album would be a rockier, Max Martin and Alexander Kronlund-penned song, but the '80s styled video, her latest collaborators (Johan Bobäck, the Salazar Brothers), and the songs she's composed for other artists recently make me think we could be in for more of pop sound--more electronic than rock, or electronic-meets-rock.

The Fibes, Oh Fibes / Kim Wilde duet is quite good, is it not?

Paul said...

hahahaha i'm amused that no one has mentioned Linda Sunblad is back! This is good news, but obviously overshadowed by your return. Saints be praised etc :) My Sunday just got sunnier :P

Just yesterday I had a thought that it's time to ask PG if she's gonna come back and what a pleasant surprise to see your new post now! :)
I can't wait for new Linda's single and I really hope that it's THAT song written by Max! By the way as she said that Max' single will be rockier and now it's said that "2 All My Girls" is pop-song I have really big doubts it's THAT Max' song...
By the way I've missed that Linda was also one of Darin's "Seasons Fly" authors.

Your return is a much-needed bright spot! So glad you're rejoining the land of the blogging!

I just twittered THE COMEBACK. I assume you've been sunning on the Amalfi coast. Did I see you there?

Mike said...

Nice to have you back, sweetheart!

As for Linda - I liked (not loved) her last album. Still very interested to see what she comes up with though.

I have been faithfully checking in here every day and never gave up hope that you'd be back...

Poster Girl said...

Aww, you all know how to make a girl feel welcome! Really, thanks so much. Thanks for not giving up hope.

XO, that, plus an ultimately fruitless though fun trip to New York.

Mike, I am with you on Linda's album, but there's a real potential there that shines through sometimes.

Thanks, Scandipop! Thankfully I've got your site to catch me up on everything I've missed out on in my favorite music-producing countries in the world.
